Taiwan food tycoon Wei Ying-chun has been indicted on 139 counts of fraud regarding the use and sale of contaminated cooking by his company, Ting Hsin International Group, South China Morning Post reported. The Changhua District Prosecutors Office has recommended a 30-year prison sentence, and are seeking up to 25-year sentences for three other individuals involved in the scandal. Making matters worse for Wei Ying-chun, prosecutors also plan to charge him separately regarding tax evasion going back to 2006 and totaling NT$730 million (US$24.02 million). Prosecutors claim the sale of bad oil has been going on for eight years and helped the group generate NT$3.2 billion. Wei has denied all charges.
